Tethering out of the box
Thank You: Schyzm - Tethering out of the box - Page 2 - xda-developers Updated, Fixed and Posted by: Pimpindexter
To Recap: In order to tether this without paying the extra $25 per month to Verizon, or installing PDAnet (and putting up with free pdanet limitations), here's what to do:
Step 1: reprogramming your phone
from your phone, dial ##pst - Press Call
click "edit mode"
enter security code 000000
scroll down to Security
change the "S.IP DUN User Name" to "<your phone number>@vzw3g.com"
scroll down to "M.IP Default Profile"
change "DUN NAI" to "<your phone number>@vzw3g.com"
press menu, choose "Commit Modifications."
The phone will power cycle.
Step 2: Computer setup
Download Drivers: http://db.tt/1fV1jK - (WModem_Driver_Installer_v188.8.131.52) - (Extracted from VZAM Setup)
run Setup WModem_Driver_Installer_v184.108.40.206.exe
Next, plug your phone in to the computer. Let windows take care of the driver installation.
Per your version of windows, you'll need to set up a manual dial-up networking connection. Settings you'll need:
Phone Number: #777 Username: "<your phone number>@vzw3g.com" Password: vzw
browse the internet. Duh.
Changing out PRL to full Verizon (for Legacy Alltel Users) or to Alltel/Verizon Hybrid for Verizon users in Alltel tower Areas
Some Verizon customers have had success calling in and getting the Hybrid applied to their phone. However, Verizon will not do this for Legacy Alltel users and leaves them on Alltel first, then Verizon. One byproduct for Alltel customers is the Pulldown will now say Verizon Wireless and so will the lock screen.

1a) To access Verizon towers (if Legacy Alltel user) - Grab 51893.PRL (extract the enclosed file): xda-developers
1b) To access Alltel/Verizon Hybrid towers (for Verizon users) - Grab the hybrid PRL: Multiupload.com - upload your files to multiple file hosting sites!
2) Copy the PRL of your choice to your phone's SD card's root folder.
3) Launch the dialer and type in ##775 and press call, wait a moment and you should see a pop-up.
4) enter 000000 (6 zeros) as the password.
5) press Update PRL. (Please wait a while, it takes some time)
6) Once there you should see the PRL file we're flashing and click it and then press OK.
7) It should bring you back to where you were before, press the menu button on your phone and select Commit Modifications.
8) The phone will update and reboot.
To return to your default PRL simply dial *228 and perform option 2. This will overwrite any added PRL.
but you still need the drivers on the pc i wish there was a way where u just plug it in and go
Erm , anything you plug in via USB needs drivers, just sometimes those drivers are built into the Operating System
